In 2016, the yard achieved a target of recycling 90,025 tonnes of waste, which accounts for 85 per cent of the yards total generated waste. The company also achieved a 48 per cent reduction in injuries during 2016, based on 26.5mn man-hours worked with a 3.92 injury rate frequency per million man-hours.
